Samsung PL55 - Test Shots - ISO Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using shaded natural light.


This is the full frame at 80 ISO.


At the minimum ISO setting the image is clean and well detailed, with smooth colour gradients.


Already at 100 ISO there is a little colour mottling on the green area.


At 200 ISO the noise reduction is already starting to reduce the level of fine detail.


Noise is starting to become clearly visible at 400 ISO.


800 ISO and more detail is lost. Colour is also starting to become somewhat random.


The image is very noisy at 1600 ISO, and the colour gradients are very blocky.


3200 ISO is available at 3MP, but the picture quality is not very good.


This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.

Very good review, I think this is one nifty little camera.

Very easy to use, nice set of features and I really like the look of it, especially in red and I'm not a fan of silver cameras as they always look dull to me

I actually bought mine form Amazon but my cousin found it cheaper on Shop.co.uk after being impressed with mine last month, gutted now as I could of saved £20 but it's still a really nice camera.

Here's the link http://www.shop.co.uk/10016...

Personally I would of gave it 8/10 overall and surely a 7,8, 8, 9 would equal a 8 no?

Keep up the good work trusted reviews, your the first place I come to now to find my gadget reviews.
